Just went over to see the old man for a minute this morning, and bluffed him three weeks on the draft against his bales in the godown. It was the only way I could get him to take the damthings. You bet I'll be mighty careful next time I try to accomodate the old duffer. He doesn't work that [[strikeout]] [[?]] [[/strikeout]] stunt on yours truly more than once, he doesn't.

Some of these days it's getting bloody hot. It was rising every minute tonight, so I cast me pajamas from me and took up with Schirmer's despised kikois in an effort to keep cool.
